The Sites

8 80 Streets Danforth

From August 23rd – 24th, 2019 we transformed one block of Danforth Avenue, a prominent commercial street, into a space that exemplified the City of Toronto’s aspiration to get traffic fatalities down to zero. The pop-up street makeover took place from Woodbine Ave to Woodmount Ave, and it is the first Vision Zero pop-up in Toronto, and in Canada.

8 80 Streets Pineway

Between September 29th to October 4th, 2019, we prototyped traffic calming measures on Pineway Boulevard, a residential street in Toronto. The featured street design element demonstrated simple strategies to reduce dangerous driving and support the City’s vision of having zero road fatalities.

8 80 Streets Mountview

From October 28th to 31st, we created Toronto’s first pop-up School Street. For four days, the pop-up created a temporary car-free environment on Mountview Ave during school drop-off and pick-up times in order to prioritize safe walking conditions for children at Keele Street Public School.
